Yet Tesla still generated $621 million in free cash flow in the second quarter, so the plants weren’t melting with as much cash money as Musk appeared to indicate. With Tesla’s big lead worldwide, including two worldwide factory, Lucid will certainly have its job removed to attain positive complimentary capital itself.
